Folkestone Harbour has won the Landscape Institute Awards 2019 for Best Heritage and Culture project.

The Harbour Arm, the Harbour station, the swing bridge and the railway viaduct remained in the town centre following the closure of the line.
ACME and Macfarlane & Associates have used these remnants to create a new pedestrian route utilizing the remaining rail tracks and points, to connect the town centre to the Harbour Arm. 

The shingle beach is the habitat of a number of plants like sea kale, and a team of volunteers have worked over the years to create further community gardens in the harbour station. Plants from these gardens have been incorporated into the planting of the station and harbour viaduct, to create sustainable coastal gardens suited to the harsh coastal environment.
